mettle - Fair Trade was conceived in Cambodia after seeing an opportunity to create work for the Artisans. All items are fair trade accredited, limited edition and hand made using recycled Bombshell metal, Lucite & Eco Leather.
The entire range is produced in Cambodia and Indonesia within a small, not for profit, income generating and skills training project owned by it`s members.
Aiming to bridge the gap between design driven pieces and fair trade ethics.
Fair business dealings -
mettle - fair trade supports small disadvantaged producers through a business relationship that is fair and non exploitative. We make sure people are well supported seeing producers as people; not just producers of goods.
The co-op enlisted by mettle is registered with the Cambodian government as a local association; a not for profit group owned by its members.
In line with this ethos, all pieces are made from recycled materials. The end result is a hand made eco luxe piece to be cherished for all the right reasons.
